"Doctor. He choked to death? He did. Yes. Oh my God. Yeah. And if you're wondering why reginald B Powell is called Jack Powell, I think there was a better pitcher previously for the browns who was Jack Powell, so it is believed that perhaps he was just also called Jack because he was another pitcher named Powell for the browns, but here's the longer somewhat more detailed story that Bill haber came across and that I've also dug up. So this is from the commercial appeal of Memphis, Tennessee, march 13th, 1930, headline, man chokes to death attempting to swallow half steak in one bite. An attempt by reginald B Jack Powell 38 to swallow half of a steak at one byte in a cafe on south Main Street ended fatally last night when Powell choked to death, Powell cut a large stake in half, and after telling customers in the restaurant to watch. Attempted to swallow one of the haves, Charles Marcos proprietor of the restaurant said, after a couple of chews, Powell began choking and grew frantic in his efforts to dislodge the piece of meat from his throat and ambulance carried the man to saint Joseph's hospital while physicians strove vainly to remove the steak, Powell died on the operating table, Thompson brothers took charge of the body and are holding it pending directions from pal's wife, misses Emma Powell of new Madrid, Missouri, in addition to his wife, he is survived by one brother, I each Powell of three 23 north Main Street, Powell had been employed in the office of Frank gaylor, county, trustee for the past three years he came to Memphis from new Madrid, his birthplace does not mention that he was a briefly a former major league pitcher, but look, it's sad. I don't want him to have frantically choked. Well, while trying to remove this piece of steak from his mouth, but he was also asking for it to some extent, I guess. If your idea is like I want bigger and bigger beefsteaks and also I'm going to call everyone in the restaurant over here to gaze upon my beefsteak feats here and I'm going to try to swallow half a beefsteak in a single bite. You know, I mean, look, I don't wish death upon anyone. I wish he had choked that down and had gone on with his life. But if this is the way I go, you know, if I go by choking on a beefsteak after bragging about my beefsteak, eating acumen and calling everyone around to be spectators at my trying to swallow an enormous piece of beefsteak, then I give future podcasters permission to say sad, but. Yeah, no, you can, you know, I think if you go that way, you're asking for it in a sense and I'd hate for him to be defined forever by one ill advised attempt to eat too much beefsteak and but like look, he died doing what he loved, right? Like it sounds like this is perhaps the way that he would have wanted to go eating a beefsteak or trying to. So that's the consolation, I guess. I guess, yeah, I've never, you know, like the Darwin award thing always just feels so mean. It does. I don't think you're being mean. You're being a little mean. You're not being as mean as the Darwin awards. That's right. It's just straightforwardly mean. I mean, if comedy is tragedy, plus time, right? Yeah. No, I mean, 92 years. Right, you wouldn't have made fun of this as if it didn't happen yesterday. That would have been cruel. I guess it's not like less sad because it happened 92 years ago. I guess in the sense that he would have died of something else by now, if he had managed to get the beefsteak down. We might have been able to call him. Right, yeah. No. But like, you know, probably no one who knew him and boring Tim is still around that I would be offending here. So I feel a little bit better about it, but there is something to the fact that he both loved steak and was like, oh my God. Half the steak and then it's like do they not have a heimlich maneuver then? 'cause you would think it's like a big piece so you could just get out of there. Maybe it's just too big to be timeless. I don't know. But no one try this at home. Yeah. Look, we don't want to take too many bold editorial stances on effectively wild tree be sanctimonious, but one we will say is true food, you know? Food. And cut reasonable manageable sizes for yourself, you'll know how big that is because you know your mouth in a way we don't, you

"Which is where you say, that's sad, but, you know, because there's something perhaps silly about the death, like kind of almost like a Darwin awards aspect to the death. So this came to light courtesy of one of the great researchers of baseball Bill haber, who was a founding member of saber and specifically devoted himself to player deaths, right, and to trying to figure out how players died or where they died and get that death information that we kind of take for granted when we go to baseball reference, and there's not only a burst date, but a death date on there. And so Bill haber was able to track down hundreds of players, deaths, and the details surrounding their deaths and I'm reading here from a New York Times article called the sleuth of baseball from 1986, which was about haber and it says when haber came across the name of one Samuel Powell in a baseball encyclopedia, he was intrigued. Powell pitched in two games for the St. Louis browns in 1913. Other than the listing of his name, there was not an outs more of background information about him, who was Samuel Powell, heber asked himself by incredible perseverance over a period of years, says haber, he found out Samuel Powell was actually Jack Powell, who was actually reginald, Bertrand Powell, haber traced him to a small newspaper clipping in the Memphis commercial appeal on March 12th, 1930, and I have also looked up that article in another article which was way easier for me to do than it was for Bill haber at the time because I just had to put this into newspapers dot com. A lot of research is easier these days. But Jack Powell, I learned, was really the original beef boy, not because he was big and beefy, although he was, he was 6 two, which was quite large for someone born in 1891, but really for other reasons, which I will share with you now. So this is actually from the York dispatch on March 13th, 1930, and the headline is man chokes to death. Okay, so that is the sad part. And here is the but and this is the headline craving for bigger and better stake is fatal. Okay? And this is an AP story from Memphis, Tennessee, reginald B Powell, enjoyed only one thing better than a beefsteak, and that's more a beefsteaks. He told friends. He entered a cafe early today in order to favorite cut, calling patrons of the restaurant to his table, he said, here's to bigger and better beefsteaks. Watch me eat half of this one in one bite. Oh my gosh. He choked to death before he could be taken to a

"Windows, good for any Friday home game, but when 21,000 went through the free Gates early in June and 31,000 the following week, an effort was made to prevent the same fan ets. We probably don't need to adapt the term fan. We sure don't. From repeating each week, mister Veck then set aside the entire upper deck of the grandstand for the ladies, which limited the guest to some 17,500 seats to facilitate a fair distribution of tickets, applicants were obliged to send a stamped self addressed envelope to the cubs offices for the recent New York giant series vec was forced to clamber over ten government mailbags to reach his office, so now only one ticket is given to each applicant. Baseball attendance may be suffering in some localities and considering the business depression it would be strange if the turnstiles did not slow up, but it is surviving the financial drought far better than some of the other professional sports. And Jacob concludes vec and Donahue did not invent ladies day, which had been around since the late 19th century, but they did more than anyone to promote it and encourage women to come to the ballpark on a regular basis. They also hired someone to professionalize the usher staff and keep the grandstands clean. Some of those ladies day tickets, by the way, were mailed out by a teenage velvet junior who followed in his father's footsteps and went on to become a Hall of Fame executive in his own right. And I guess aside from the ladies day idea specifically, giving away tickets to fans, it seems to be a good idea. If you're trying to jump up interest, especially in tough economic times, definitely. That can be a good way to put people just like, hey, come have a free sample of the product. And maybe you will want to buy tickets in the future. So there are some teams that do that that give away tickets or they have marked down tickets that they sell at a vastly reduced price because if you're not selling out anyway, then why not? Just try to get people in the park, make some money, perhaps, but, you know, try to create customers who maybe paying clients in the future. So I'm in favor of in favor of free tickets and coming out in favor of giving tickets to baseball games away. Yeah, I think that that's a great idea. And then, you know, I imagine that it's a slightly different proposition now than it was then where it's like the number of ways that you can be separated for your from your money once you're in the ballpark are legion today. Exactly. In a way that I imagine was a little less true then. I mean, I don't know what the state of ballpark concessions were merchandise. I'm sure there was something to buy, but it probably wasn't anywhere near as varied or expensive as it is now. So yeah, once you get people inside, you know, they're going to want a soda or a beer or water or a hot dog or something, you know? Let them see what it's all about. I think it's nice. And the second past blasts, this is something I've been waiting to pass west about for a couple months here. I think I first saw it on the Twitter account that I have shouted out before old timey baseball articles. That's at old baseball news on Twitter, which is run by one of our listeners, and Patreon supporters who goes by sir parcell and often post these things on Reddit as well. And this is a news item about a player death from 1930. And I would put this in the category of what the podcaster Mike pesca, former effectively wild guest has called a sad butt death. Not what it sounds like. Saddam, but. That got my butt, which is where you say, that's sad, but, you know, because there's something perhaps silly about the death, like kind of almost like a Darwin awards

"WGN radio I'm probably James I'm glad of course it's June Chandler Movie situation 1970 on mercury got to number 8 on R&B charts 12 on the pop charts Jean didn't write it but he did write the next mercury charter simply call it low Another one of my faves Scottie and east Chicago wanted to play that and more than happy to do it Just one of the best records of 1970 as far as I'm concerned and we were talking to Leah in Marcus hook about this brain trust Richard Jacobson 21 years old All right so I read the whole story a couple times And I got some questions myself All right Yeah He's a candidate for a Darwin award Well yeah The way I did this story Well there's another thing too According to his friend who was with him he of course as you mentioned was leaning over to take a picture he wanted to make sure he got the city in the background The symphony taking a selfie Well not only was he taking a selfie while they're talking about getting the city in the background I guess they mean the city lights because it was quarter to one in the morning Oh yeah On the side of a mountain quarter to one in the morning So that night mode on a spoon so And this is not an easy place to get to either This road is half closed It's how I 88 You can catch it from Apache junction going back out It's in penal county and not middle of nowhere truly And you're on an unpaved road to begin with and you're at a park that okay I guess maybe some hikers might like it or some campers might like it But I can think of a dozen other parks that would have been easier to reach and probably more fun But there he was And they're his friend called I can say quarter to one in the morning to say he was reaching overtaken a self and he fell Well apparently boy did he ever about 700 feet is what he fell And so the search and rescue team said it's a rare tragic accident and I'm sure behind the scenes they were saying thinning the herd Darwin award So poor Richard Jacobson no Ever since I stopped doing the news here because I just don't have any more time I don't get to see anything So this was literally not far I didn't know about Richard and his escapade But we won't be hearing about him any longer No now I'm under the selfie came out though Well yeah If he had the phone in his hand it's doubtful that it was in a good enough condition to see I don't know the advertisers new Apple phones is indestructible Well they don't assume you're falling at four at 700 feet off flatiron summit But none the nonetheless there you have it So there's a new there's a new Alexa commercial that I love so much There's a girl and she's acting out as a scene of a play that she's going to be in for her I don't know brother father boyfriend whatever And he's sitting down She's standing up and she's holding like a patch over one eye and she's doing like a I don't know maybe what's meant to be a pirate accent or something and she's talking about Barry gold or anything and she's or something and she's like where did we hide And she's doing like this terrible accent and she's just overacting the part very badly and she looks at him and she goes are you going to come to the see myself My play And it goes yeah when is it And she says march 8th And he looks at her and he says sure and then Alexa says march 8th set to date to claim to falsely claim that your death or something like that really funny Okay Well yeah I think anybody using those products is probably a candidate for the Darwin awards but that's just me But you got to wonder quarter to one in the morning I don't know I think one in the morning Off the side of the mountain I think they needed to question the companion a little bit more What time did he start climbing the mountain if he got was he even at the top he must have been like somewhere in the middle So it's sort of an area there You know it's in the superstition mountains I don't know I couldn't tell you what the height of it is But I will say that there's something about this would make me want to have a real long conversation with the companion Yeah Yeah So after this I know there were a number of articles on how to stay safe while climbing the mountains You really don't need many articles You don't take a photo on a ledge at quarter to one in the morning Yeah yeah on a huge mountain like 700 feet in the air I don't really get the whole selfie thing anyway I mean you know I don't even like to look in the mirror that much When let alone go around taking pictures of myself all the time I don't know Apparently I don't get it Apparently Now the way I read it he and his companion had been missionaries all right So the companion I think I'm making this up Andrew Thomas was the companion and he referred to mister Jacobson as one of those guys that everyone loved is said to lose him but we know it's not the end We're going to see him again And then he said he had a good sense of humor a positive attitude He was just my companion I spent all my waking hours with Richard so I got to know him pretty well He was an outdoorsman a hunter a hiker He did stuff like that so I guess he did die doing what he loved to do in a tragic sort of way All right then That was the companion's quote Yeah well now the question I got to read this again because I'm not sure it's the same companion that was on the mountain This guy might have several companions I mean I don't know I really think I'm sort of door and this was like coffee break or something I don't know Well no he's a missionary with him in 2020 so I guess they got over that And now they're saying we're going to see him again All right Well so probably at the bottom of the mountain So that's the deal I don't know is the answer but I don't I think we need lessons and how to stay safe on mountains First step not in the middle of the night second step not selfies leaning over cliffs What's on the national news And I just said oh you know it's this lightbulb moment That's the Darwin award for me I mean does it all I think he's a candidate Well we'll see I wonder if they're just going to close the case immediately if they're going to take a little more action into what was maybe it was the better living through chemistry plan I don't know if they did an autumn When you said 1 a.m. I was thinking that I don't know if they were reaching for interesting substances to get higher than the mountains I'm not sure But who finds a mountain at 1 a.m. Well I'm sure there is somebody but it's one less That's for sure One word Yep And I wanted to say also to stay the unfair and sorry for your loss of Ronaldo All my sympathies and prayers for your strengths and the coming days ahead Absolutely Yeah And I'm also I wanted to mention this if you have another minute the stuff I just tried today called Sarah brass It's this new I don't know if.

That's the goal is that we're going to try to get them out there. Our goal from day one has always been trying to get as many well made 8 ks and two American hands as possible. All right, last question. We're talking to Brandon Harare. You've got to subscribe right now to his YouTube channel. He is the AK guy. What are you hearing? You are better plugged in than anybody when it comes to Kalashnikov's with regards to the Russian ammunition ban. Our understanding was existing orders contracts can be honored, the Biden administration is stopping any new arrangements. Is it as bleak as we expected? What are you hearing from inside the industry? Well, it's kind of one of those Milton Friedman things where, you know, there's nothing more permanent than a temporary government program. About 12 months in 12 months after the supposed ban, they would be revisiting it to see if they would put a stay on it or continue it. So we'll see what happens. I never never bank on the government giving us more freedom than we have, but you never know. Things, especially with the Biden administration, you have no clue what these people have in mind. But in the meantime, we've got what ammunition of Russian caliber being made in the Ukraine. And there's, isn't there some 5.5 5 that's made here as well, Brandon? I don't know if there's any major here, but we have plenty of Ukraine, the Czech Republic, Slovakia. There's a lot of companies and a lot of different places, not necessarily American, but still picking up where Russia had left off. So prices are starting to normalize again. Thank God. And I guess we're really just have to see where it's at in the next 6 to 12 months. Well, I am super excited. I've got 3 million witnesses right now. He said, I get to shoot the 50 Cal next time. I love the 50 Cal. God bless your brand and keep doing what you do. Keep crushed getting guys. You've got to watch it especially his Darwin awards and the worst gun meme of the day of videos as well.

Look Uh, if you if you're if If you do something completely stupid. Because you read it on the Internet. It's hard not to laugh at people. Let's be real. I mean, that's the reason they have the Darwin Awards. All right, like there's a reason for some of those things. The vaccine thing, though, is a battle. Because first of all, it's not a vaccine. Can we just change the word? Can we change the wording? You don't get a flu vaccine. Really? You get a flu shot. That's what he says. Hey, come get the flu shot. You drive by Walgreens or CVS, come get the flu shot. It's a shot that will offer you protection. In many cases. It's effective between 14 about 60% on a yearly basis of you not getting the flu. But what it truly does is it acts as a also as much it is, is a crime fighter of you getting the flu. It is also something where will help mitigate any kind of damage you get. Should you get the flu will be far more mild. Your symptoms won't be as bad. The chance of being hospitalized will be lessened all of those things That's kind of the way we need to approach is because we have this psychological data vaccine is a vaccine, right? I got polio to shock that it up. This is something different and and and Because it's the flu is not political. Like, does anybody go got these people want me to take a photo shot? Huh? They are What side of the aisle. These people are taking their freedoms away. That's the way every screens. You know, and everybody else on the other side, like Oh, gosh, Totally. Take this. Where? 12 Mask Height house. And you're like us. Than in the common sense, people all of us in the middle. We're just looking around going. What? Who? Why do you guys have mix well, partly because you guys are the train wreck that everybody wants to see. Right? That's that's a lot of what it is. You are that Unfortunately, The group is big enough to cause on both sides because Helen havoc And people are enjoying this. All that being said one thing that did bother me about what Stern said. And like, Hey, look. Those guys have died in particular feel, Valentine. Who is probably the most famous of them all. Who had a big following was nationally syndicated host for a while, he was out there that it's a super talker in Nashville. And he was a you know, I mean, Phil was a pretty damn big conservative house for a very long time and and and politically, he you know, he was, uh, especially throughout Nashville and Tennessee and and and the conservative movement. He was pretty damn big. He wasn't he people say was he? Nancy Baxter wasn't it Doesn't matter. I mean, should we celebrate? Because if you celebrated death of somebody else, let's just say this for a second. All right, which happened? In the eighties and nineties, and especially with AIDS. If you celebrate that How would you be perceived today? If you laugh at somebody else. What an idiot. You got AIDS. Funny. Oh, like, how would you be perceived? Yeah, That's what he gets, right, You know. You know, unprotected sex and sharing needles. That's what you get. It was done, people. I mean, they did it and it wasn't good either. My big frustration on all of this, though. Was when he talked about he talked about freedom. What are we going to stop putting up.

Well that was the best episode of the week and Instead of the massive pool of you who listen to the monday wednesday show. it's a pretty exclusive audience. there would just over a thousand people on patriots.

"Just call people power hungry. The health department officials are not power hungry. They're trying to save your stupid life one hundred years from now if humans last that long. They're going to look back on this era and they're going to say every one of us wins a darwin award because we're so stupid during this pandemic. It's just ridiculous. I think the vaccine is were personal. Contacts from people that they trust locally. Endorsements by celebrities are nice endorsements by political leaders are nice but it doesn't matter who those folks are. They need to hear it from whomever they consider personal and credible locally whether it's clergy or it is their doctor or their next door neighbor or it's a close relative they trust. That's getting people over the line but even so we've still got a hard core in this country were bound and determined that i am going to rough it out because either i don't believe that the covert is nearly as bad as they say it's just scare tactics. Which somehow has the entire world scared. I don't know who's our enough to do that. scare tactics or they just think that the vaccines has got the bill gates chip in it or that it's going to make them sterile or that it's bad for pregnancy or whatever we've got a hundred fifty million americans that have taken these vaccines and how many stories have we seen about people that are having violent deaths because of the vaccine none. Yeah yeah now are seven day average infection rate in michigan. His double. what it was Are fourteen day. Average though is less than in most other states this is all attributed to the delta variant. A vaccine does does give you some resistance to that variant which is more transmissible by far than the alpha think. We're at about sixty three percent vaccinated in michigan and to your point about these vaccine pest birds i actually have two thoughts on that one. Is i just hate the word passport. Because we don't use that word for any other vaccine that we require for certain things however if you wanna use that word because it does kind of act like a passport. If the government stays out of the way and let's the businesses makeup thrown mind and the universities and community colleges make let these organizations make up their own minds about how they wanna handle this this You know with vaccine and and how people are going to come into their establishment whether it's masked or they're not allowed because they don't have the vaccine and that kind.

"Needed this in in baltimore where he went over overdue. Yes you're the president of the united states. I mean not legitimately. We know that but still technically for now. You're the president of the united states that trump's being a dude that hit a home run at least should at least it should. I'm by the way for the effort baseball fans out there. I can't confirm that. Trevor bauer was there and that biden gave him some sex in tips. But that's probably why he's wanted for right now anyway. Moving right along. Let's get to some items about the fourth of july. Because i mean it's just prime its prime material for more stories so i up. We've got a woman who was arrested. Good story he was arrested after crashing a fourth of july parade on her tractor and then evading. The police still on her tractor. Of course this is in texas. I know it. Sounds like a florida story It was in rockwall texas his a sixty one year old woman and she was just out casually driving a tractor. It looks like she was probably some really good. Meth based on this mugshot and she saw some people having fourth of july parade. She said well hang. Did this thing i've joined in. I got a nice big slow moving vehicle. I mean who wouldn't want to see my face So she just like tried to like bogart into the parade and they wanted nothing to do with this. They're not gonna let crazy crackhead jump into their parade and throughout little bags of federal people. So they called the police. The police got pretty quickly. 'cause they probably were already there. It's a parade. So the the traffic's not moving at all and then she gets into a slow speed police chase as they try to chase her down on her tractor honestly. I like this story. I if this doesn't represent freedom. I don't know what does cubans someday soon. This could be you. This could be you so get your nineteen fifty seven chevies baby and crashing parades while high on various substances. You probably don't have access to right now. I don't know why they they risk swimming across shark invested waters to come a country like this. You know to to go to florida for fuck sake speaking of florida. Let's head to golden gate's states. now we're gonna see how florida man celebrated our independence and we'll see that on her ring doorbell camera as they associated florida. He decided that his fourth of july would be spent putting bunch of fireworks on strangers doorsteps and lighting them. Talk about ding dong ditch. You imagine if he opened the door at a bunch of fireworks are popping off yet strays enough. This article says that this legal Mckay off florida also has a standard around law. Seems like a stupid way to die is a funny video. Though really really great. Prank regular ashton kutcher there Anyway in our last fourth of july headlined for the night speaking of people dying out. We've got a hockey player. Who will never get a chance. Unfortunately to hoist the stanley cup. But the good news is he just might win a darwin award. So it's a it's a goal goaltender anna from a sports fans out there. You know this hockey goalies are fucking crazy people. So you shouldn't be too surprised. Twenty four year old is names matisse give lengths navy as did that right So he was in novi michigan. He's from latvia. But he's a he's in the blue jackets Minor league system. He played a couple games in the nhl last season. And for some reason hanging out with a former goalie from From the red wings in no lie. And they're still whoever would athletes. Do i'm guessing they're getting pretty fucking drunk. I guess i know they're getting fucking drunk. A canadian and a latvian hockey player yet. They're getting drunk and they're playing the fireworks and other dead mother dead. Oh this guy's dead because Because he was in a bathtub very hot tub playing with fireworks. And i guess they got a little too lit. Fireworks started going off like crazy he gets out of the topic starts trying to rining slips. He falls firework. hits him in. The chest blows him any blows a male so tragic accident. he's never going to get to play. Leave playing in that big rig in the sky now but if you don't play with fireworks and a hot tub unless you're unless you're one of the hardy boyz man jeff hardy. You can do this yet and it will probably be really entertaining some some latvian hockey goalie in the american. The ahl now probably not a good idea Arrested in peace rested pieces. I think the fireworks bloom in the bloom in pieces but at least he he got to die as an american. Doing what americans do anyway. I wasn't gonna take any calls i see. I had one come in ballots.

"Listening to Tech nation. I've been speaking with neuroscientist Daniel Levitan, likely best known to you from his books such as This Is Your Brain on music on a field guide to lies. He's here today with successful aging. A neuroscientist explores the power and potential of our lives. Okay, now emotional stability. Could be tough for some people. We used to call it in the field neuroticism, and then they decided to call it by its positive since the others were more or less positive. Emotional stability is something that really is, It's hard to imagine having too much of it. Unless it numbs you to beauty and love and art. On and the finer things in life. You don't allow yourself to get caught up in pleasure or pain. Let's say But that that again is a predictor. Importantly of social relations work relations. Look Carrie Mathison in homeland, the character played by Claire Danes. She's an emotional wreck, not in control of her emotions, and she leaves a path of destruction in her wake. She's still effective at her job, but How much more effective could she be if she was More. Emotionally stable. Think of a friend of mine who member of their family was pretty emotionally unstable but was extremely successful and she used to say You just never know who's gonna walk in the door. Save guy. Physically, they could be up down mad, but all the emotions were always out or he was tired. You know, They said this about Stan Getz that he was a great bunch of guys. There you go. There you go. So but good. The great saxophone players spent a lot of time in San Francisco. Actually, you've been talking about the last one all through the first four, and that's the openness. Yeah. Open this to experience curiosity. These are all things again too much curiosities. We know killed the cat. You know the Darwin Awards. You're full of people who were overly curious like the German middle aged man who decided he wanted to see how hand grenades worked. And so he had found one and he put it in his vice, and he was gingerly sawing it open to see what was inside and it exploded and it killed him. Uh, that's a little too much curiosity and open this, I would say Yeah, yes, that want to get in trouble. You know, there's a lot you've been in trouble before. You don't need any more trouble. I don't think so. But But in general curiosity is a good thing and a very important quality to start nurturing at a young age. And if you didn't have it natively or the younger age, a crucial quality when you're older. To develop. I talked to a lot of life hackers in their twenties and they say, Well, what? What can I do? So that I'll be better in my thirties or get a competitive edge, especially Silicon Valley life. Hackers kind of people who listen to tech nation, of course. They're trying to optimize their brains. And I mean conscientiousness is important. But for For success in the business world in innovation in academia and technology. Cultivating a sense of curiosity and wonder. Is crucial. It creates new pathways. You're always you're always the most interesting person at a party or in a meeting if you're curious about other people rather than try to talk about yourself. It's interesting that you mentioned Silicon Valley because of the many things you talk about in the book. One is the young people in Silicon Valley that I know that really wanted increase their performance. And they've gotten into trouble with something we call micro does think Let's go there, all right? Well, um There. There is some evidence that some Some chemical substances can enhance cognition, and there's a wide range of these so called smart drugs. The vast majority of them are just quackery and pseudo science and bunk and somebody trying to make a buck. But there are a few that have been reliably shown to be cognitive enhancers. They don't work for everybody. The classic one from our generation is meth Affinity, which was known under the brand name Ritalin. More modern version of that is modal final brand name Provigil. Which can be a cognitive enhancer originally developed as a narcolepsy drug. Uh, And to help fighter pilots in the Iraq war to be able to fly 12 or 14 hours and still be fresh when they get there, But interestingly it's not a stimulant. They don't really understand the mechanism of action. Unlike Adderall, or or straight amphetamines, which are stimulants, the the dangers heir to fold here, which is that we don't have long term studies. On the kind of well, it's really it's recreational use. I mean, sure, it's got a business purpose. You're trying to get a competitive edge, but normally these drugs were made for people with serious medical conditions. And we don't have enough evidence about what the effects will be. If rather than simply trying to restore your neurochemistry to its normal biological levels, you're trying to boost them. We just don't know Now, Of course, they're micro dose e LSD and ketamine and all other kinds of drugs. And again a lot of evidence that those air helpful. The psychedelics Michael Palin wrote a fantastic book about it. And so when his book came out, we talked about it on You know, the science is certainly behind it for the cognitive enhancement. Launch again Long term We don't know now, Of course, the second I said there were two problems. The second problem is ethical. Um If You know, you and I are both wearing glasses. Glasses or a cognitive enhancement. Let's be honest, help us to read and at some point I'll get hearing AIDS and those will be cognitive enhancing. Um Is the ethical question. Um, if you had attention deficit disorder. And disordered neural firing and riddle and helped That seems like it's creating an even playing field..

"Your favorite artists. Now, let's get to Senator Make Sally Who's What's your reaction to this corruption where Joe Biden seems to have lied about Never Never talking about business, especially the Marie's My Ukrainian stuff with his son when emails from his own son's computer clearly show they have Yeah, they, Gary. Good morning is going to great to be with Don Jr today. I hope everybody could get out there and rally to help President Trump get across the finish line here with 20 days ago. Yeah, I saw that story. Pop this morning. I've been going on stops and five. I don't think anybody believed That Joe Biden never talked to his son about his position on the board of Charisma. I mean, give me a break. I don't think anybody believe those denials. Um, it'll be interesting to see you know where this love top came from, and it's about to get dropped off to get repaired and nobody ever picked it up. I mean, they get the Darwin Award for that, if that's what they did. Well, they were trying to hide all this stuff, But, um, I mean, seriously, I think it just reveals again. That should Joe Biden win, which we need to stop here in Arizona. You're gonna have just additional grifting going on the elite in our country by then, and his cronies and his family and Omar Kelly and all his. This is what the political elite does right. They Yeah, they can gain influence. They try to profit off the positions that they're in on. That's why Donald Trump got elected, and that's why he needs to get re elected in order to ensure this, you know, divide and doesn't get back in there when it comes to the corruption. I mean, Joe Biden. It's not just Ukraine in the Ukraine, and then we look at it on a local level. I mean, Mark Kelly, your opponent. They right here in Pima County World View. One of the many investors is in it is 10 Cent, which is the tech giant That literally does all the censorship right for the child, Calm government. Center with Internet Exactly again. This is an example of what the elite has been doing in America, right? They looked, you know, be able to profit off of connections. Profit off of, you know government relationships, and this is Mark Kelly story. He went over to China, as I talked about in the debate in 2003 on this Chinese propaganda arm retreat, trying to bring the elite in America into their orbit, and it succeeded and went back in 2004. Back in 2005, But it was the most meaningful thing he did in his life other than going to space, which is bizarre and then went to space in 2006 brought the Chinese Communist banter with him. Because it was so meaningful to him. And then he gets out of the you know, retired from the military and starts a company in Tucson and reaches out to 10 Cent to invest in this company. This is a 10 cent interview to the national security threat. They are close to the Chinese government, and you don't just pick up the phone and call 10 Cent. He had to have had those relationships already, which started to form while he was still active duty Navy going over to China and then profiting off of trying to get rich quick. I look, we want people to be able to prosper in America, right, Garrett we care about hard work, You know, Start a business being entrepreneur and prosperity is not a bad thing, but what the elite has done. They built prosperity off relationships and, you know, corruption and access, and that's what the Americans and Arizonans are against. And that's what that take care in my election as well. You know, I sit here in question. How could this guy want to be a senator when he literally knows that he's doing business with Communists and a company that is in charge of censoring the Internet? You know, with that kind of judgment. How can he be trusted to be a senator for the United States representing Arizona? And he can't is the point. It's disqualifying and is that 10 Cent has been basically cracking down and censoring, you know Chinese citizens in Hong Kong and other places. They are collecting information wherever they can. They're they're Chinese state owned company, and Mark Kelly is in business with them. And you know many other Americans are, too But that doesn't mean you get to be a senator is the point. China is our biggest year political threat. They unleashed this virus on us in and stealing our jobs, stealing our technology, stealing our research President Trump of the first one to stand up to them. I am standing up to them. This is this is the critical national security issue of this election is standing up to China and we cannot allow Joe Biden and Mark Kelly to be in there with their deep financial ties. It is disqualified. As a senator, with China being such a threat and you know, I eyeballed this. I thought this on great websites that do all kinds of great reporting about how college campuses university is basically had paid off by China. Half devil there. Then they set up shop like you have a Ieyasu. They both had it where they set up shop and they can't They can't the colleges themselves can't even get in there. It's like it's like it becomes like a Chinese Embassy. Almost where they just set up shop and steal information. I mean, should they be Ben? If you were senator, what would you do to crack down on China? Stealing our our intellectual property getting on our campuses, stealing everything that we're doing? What? We're already doing it again. People are waking up to it that China has been doing this in plain sight as you mentioned, you know, access to our research institution or universities trying tow have basically their propaganda arm while they steal our technology Steeler job. We already cracking down on this. I mean, I'm on a bill with Rick Scott and some others specifically about a full review of all students are here, you know, during research and the visa applications and those who are associate ID potentially with you know the Chinese military. They're using our free society and are open system to their benefit, And it's like jokes on us, right? So we've got to take a full review. Of the access that they have legally and illegally. I mean, they, you know, they do cyber attacks and they take our stuff. But in many cases they were taking it legally because we're giving them access through technology transfers, you know, joint ventures or, you know, research access and things like that. It's time for America to wake up. We need to take a full review of our own security. Here, do everything we can to hold China accountable and ensure that we bring our manufacturing homes that we're not relying on them for a PPE and our pharmaceuticals and Critical minerals we need, you know, making f 35 you know, or air our defense equipment. I mean, this is this is a wake up call for America. This is very much what this election is about. And that's why President Trump has to get re elected and why I've got to get elected and make sure that Mark Kelly's not in Senate and one of those things reason to get in..

"darwin awards" Discussed on KNST AM 790

"Sally What's your reaction to this corruption where Joe Biden seems to have lied about? Never Never talking about business, especially the Marie's My Ukrainian stuff with his son when emails from his own son's computer clearly show they have Yeah. Hey, Gary. Good morning is going to great to be with Don Jr today. I hope everybody could get out there and rally to help President Trump get across the finish line here with 20 days ago. Yeah, I saw that story. Pop this morning. I've been going on stops and five. I don't think anybody believed That Joe Biden never talked to his son about his position on the board of Charisma. I mean, give me a break. I don't think anybody believe those denials. Um, it'll be interesting to see you know where this love top came from, and it's about to get dropped off to get repaired and nobody ever picked it up. I mean, they get the Darwin Award for that, if that's what they did. Well, they were trying to hide all this stuff, But, um, I mean, seriously, I think it just reveals again. That should Joe Biden win, which we need to stop here in Arizona. You're gonna have just additional grifting going on the elite in our country by then, and his cronies and his family and Omar Kelly and all his. This is what the political elite does right. They Yeah, they can gain influence. They try to profit off the positions that they're in on. That's why Donald Trump got elected, and that's why he needs to get re elected. In order to ensure this, you know, Joe Biden doesn't get back in there when it comes to the corruption. I mean, Joe Biden. It's not just Ukrainians in the Ukraine, and then we look at it on a local level. I mean, Mark Kelly, your opponent. They right here in Pima County World View. One of the many investors is in it is 10 Cent, which is the tech giant That literally does all the censorship right for the child, Calm government. Center with Internet Exactly again. This is an example of what the elite has been doing in America, right? They looked, you know, be able to profit off of connections. Profit off of, you know government relationships, and this is Mark Kelly story. He went over to China, as I talked about in the debate in 2003 on this Chinese propaganda arm retreat, trying to bring the elite in America into their orbit, and it succeeded and went back in 2004. Back in 2005, But it was the most meaningful thing he did in his life other than going to space, which is bizarre and then went to space in 2006 brought the Chinese Communist banter with him. Because it was so meaningful to him. And then he gets out of the you know, retired from the military and starts a company in Tucson and reaches out to 10 Cent to invest in this company. This is a 10 cent interview to the national security threat. They are close to the Chinese government, and you don't just pick up the phone and called 10 Cent. He had to have had those relationships already, which started to form while he was still active duty Navy going over to China and then profiting off it trying to get rich quick. I look, we want people to be able to prosper in America. Right, Garrett. We care about hard work, You know, Start a business being entrepreneur and prosperity is not a bad thing, but what the elite has done. They built prosperity off relationships and, you know, corruption and access, and that's what the Americans and Arizonans are against. And that's what that take care in my election as well. You know, I sit here in question. How could this guy want to be a senator when he literally knows that he's doing business with Communists and a company that is in charge of censoring the Internet? You know, with that kind of judgment. How can he be trusted to be a senator for the United States representing Arizona? And he can't is the point. It's disqualifying and is that 10 Cent has been basically cracking down and censoring, you know Chinese citizens in Hong Kong and other places. They are collecting information wherever they can. They're they're Chinese state owned company, and Mark Kelly is in business with them. And you know many other Americans are, too But that doesn't mean you get to be a senator is the point. China is our biggest year political threat They unleashed this virus on us have been stealing our jobs, stealing our technology, stealing our research President Trump of the first one to stand up to them. I am standing up to them. This is this is the critical national security issue of this election is standing up to China and we cannot allow Joe Biden and Mark Kelly to be in there with their deep financial ties. It is disqualified. As a senator, with China being such a threat and you know, I eyeballed this. I've caught this on great websites that do all kinds of great reporting about how college campuses university is basically a paid off by China. Half devil there. Then they set up shop like you have a Ieyasu. They both had it where they set up shop and they can't They can't the colleges themselves can't even get in there. It's like it's like it becomes like a Chinese Embassy. Almost where they just set up shop and steal information. I mean, should they be Ben? If you're senator, what would you do to crack down on China? Stealing our our intellectual property getting on our campuses, stealing everything that we're doing? What? We're already doing it again. People are waking up to it that China has been doing this in plain sight as you mentioned, you know, access to our research institution or universities trying tow have basically their propaganda arm while they steal our technology Steeler job. We already cracking down on this. I mean, I'm on a bill with Rick Scott and some others specifically about a full review of all students are here, you know, during research and the visa applications and those who were associate ID, potentially with that, you know the Chinese military. They're using our free society and are open system to their benefit, And it's like jokes on us, right? So we've got to take a full review. Of the access that they have legally and illegally. I mean, they, you know, they do cyber attacks and they take our stuff. But in many cases they were taking it legally because we're giving them access through technology transfers, you know, joint ventures or, you know, research access and things like that. It's time for America to wake up. We need to take a full review of our own security. Here, do everything we can tow hold China accountable and ensure that we bring our manufacturing homes that we're not relying on them for a PPE and our pharmaceuticals and critical minerals. We need to, you know, make an F 35 you know, or air our defense equipment. I mean, this is this is a wake up call for America. This is very much what this election is about. And that's why President Trump has to get re elected and why I've got to get elected and make sure that Mark Kelly's not in Senate and one of those things reason to get in. There is what's going on right now. With Supreme Court with Amy Cockney Barrett and, you know, first off. I don't know how you work with these people like I'm watching the White House guy and watching Harow know, asking if she sexually assaulted anybody. Cory Booker ask her if she's against white supremacy, and she's two black Children. You know what? What is going on here? Now? She has been so impressive. She is so smart. And then one of telling part of the debate last week of Mark Kelly was that before even hearing any word she says, he told he said, yes, you said last week debate. I would not vote to confirm her without even asking questions or know anything about her. That's a big deal. Well, I was surprised. He actually said that Garrett, you know, he tends to not take a Buddhist nun. Anything he's hiding, but I forced him to answer that. And he said no and the reason he said no. And because, of course, Many yet you know, we're not. He's not going to get elected. But should he? They're gonna want liberal activist judges on the bench, packing the court. And how dare he say that he would not put this highly qualified woman who's risen to the top of her field is brilliant, unflappable of you. Anybody's watching every school room in America should be tuning into these hearings. Learn about our Constitution. Learn about what Originalist and a Texas is. Look at these people on the other side of the island. How they're conducting themselves are almost used A not nice word on another conduct themselves versus her, and she belonged on that court, and I'm going back to D..

Yell at me for stopping. That sounds like a bad side show clown straight face fits. What. I don't know that's just what came in my head. When I sent straight face, no gigabits man.

I mean he could be a John Wayne Gay. See Ma'am Times to. Why are you on your laptop? I'm not on my laptop. Are you lying I'm not a D. do you see my laptop open? I don't think you close now yet is closed. I WANNA teach us some stuff to have a history lesson history, okay? And seven years ago, I got really excited about this forefathers. Numbers in there so Jackson Beverly Wilga where collectors of vintage photographs and had in their collection a dagger type. Oh you don't say an old photograph taken using a process that involves a silver plate and Mercury Vapor, and his photo was of a young disfigured man. the photograph was believed to be taken in the nineteenth century. The man in the picture was believed that the man had encountered a whales. He was holding Harpoon like object in the image. TIFFANY's face. That was fun. they couple had the image on display in their home for years in December of two thousand and seven, the couple decided to share the image on flicker and titled it a one eyed man with Harpoon super, super creative, so one win was. When did they have it? In their home? Court were the years they had in their home, but they didn't post it till flicker until two thousand seven. Okay, so they decide like a random picture of some random disfigure. Yeah, some people collect mentioned photographs. My Dad is one of those on. This might make him happy. One Flicker user contacted the Combo commenting that the man probably isn't a whaler as he wasn't holding a Harpoon in the picture, was he holding buy outs. Oh, sorry I thought. You said he was holding her. They said it looked like her. so another user saw this picture and said Hey, this might be the only surviving photo of Venus Gauge, not famous gauge. Where's verb? Not Verb just just benny US I. Don't know that name so shown, either. That's why I said. Where's Fergany isn't firm? So, y'all ready to learn about Fini's gauge. Liz Foreign and eighteen twenty three, the DSP gauge lead, either an uneventful lifer didn't bother keeping a journal because he doesn't pop up again until eighteen forty eight, okay. Okay. No list of at the age of twenty five Fini's was working as a railroad, foreman and common dish Vermont and on September, thirteenth eighteen, forty eight made a really good attempt at receiving the Darwin Award. Oh my God. Yes, so excited, so phineas worked for the RUTLAND and Burlington railroad company as a form part of his job involved coordinating, blasting out rock to make way for new. New Rail. Lines does part of the job required knowledge in geology and trigonometry, so I have a note to me, saying Insert statement about how trig is as useful of the maths, I will say I really liked. trig choke is super. Useful triggers the most Hallo basic addition. Wouldn't just like OPRAH EMMY BE MORE USEFUL THAN TRADE? Because I never took trig and I'm getting along just fine. Your overcompensating at all. No compensation here I come to terms. Okay, so geology and trigonometry so not only did. They have to be pretty clever, but he also had a handle his crew, who was described as a gang of men who basically needed all the. Since they enjoy things brawling shooting and drinking, they sound like sounds like my. Sounds like the type of people that didn't take trig. had good people skills. Though so is crew liked them to blast the area involved not only defendants have to create schematics aware to drill holes that were a couple inches wide, and a few feet deep, but also had to be able to place them along natural joints and rifts in the rock to make the job easier because why work harder than you have to the cracks just like push it a little harder so i. Like my mental health. Hey? Push it just one step further fine, are we? I completely lost what I was going to save. Thirty Oh. Did He Oh, I was thinking like the he needed to do dousing, but you're talking about like actual cracks in the ground. Yes, we're not looking for water.

Death by a a thousand cuts

"Hello and welcome to episode two hundred eighty three of ducks lines and destinations. I am Stephen. Seagraves joined by Seth Miller and false mood. Gentlemen our healthy healthy for now for now. Yeah you guys you guys like stocking up yet your toilet paper because I have my four years of toilet paper. We POSCO UP here. No it should be there now. Costco's somewhere down in Massachusetts. That's not true. There's Nashua is there forever but I remember like an hour away so I think I think maybe the the Massachusetts will not be closer. Because we're there on the highway yet dependent independent where you are but neither is national 'cause missiles go to shop tax-free oh yeah makes sense. So so we do you. Have you set? You have a costco membership. Never have that would be a factor. Yeah you costco. You can buy a member man trader. Joe's is good. Cook those There's a trip just down the way we are by talking to the grocery store here the pricing is right. They textures as right. I prefer I enjoy. It's It's a one ply but quilted one. Lots of interesting sort of hybrid choice. It comes from It's an actual habit for this. I can't put talking about this on the show. Our House in New York had a hundred year old piping plumbing our retrofit once or twice but very bright piping and plumbing and the two black clogging it so we had to find a comfortable one ply so that I didn't have to keep Snaking the toilet and I've just stuck with that brand since New Place similar age. I don't feel like you know testing that experience again. So it was like self-preservation really got understand and and it seems that we are curious. I have plenty of. Actually I buy it at target or at the grocery store depending on. Who's telling US sale that week and had bought two jumbo packs? Just because we have enough space to store. I bought that in late January so we have plenty of but not not because of this just because that's how I buy it normally. I mean that's typically what we costco. It's like you buy like your two months. Supply routes just about two months typically a familiar with the usage rates. Because we both work from home anyway so the whole life. Nobody's doesn't change our consumption adding so should we just pivot and go the Japanese Muslim? Nobody's I'm not a fan on. I am not do feel that. It's more of a female thing to truly appreciate the We'll give my wife credit when earlier this evening. Were finishing up dinner. She says is it true. That men really don't wash their hands in the bathrooms. Generally may is that why we take so much longer. The bathrooms than men because Russia. Washing our hands. Anything else and I had to give some credit for. That might be right. You know from what I've seen Been are terrible at washing their hands in the restroom I told you guys the story of the gentleman that I saw at O'hare wearing a full face mask who use the urinal and not just a face mask us like a painter. Space Mass like the the the two big nozzles on each side and then use. The restroom interceded walk out without Washington's Darwin. Awards folks keep it simple stupid. I think One of the things that we need to talk about his just general airline cuts so that's kind of what this corona virus scare and a passenger lull. I would call it or depression I would call it is is really triggering rights Yeah I mean. We're we're recording this on evening and sorry we're late again. This week. We had another guest plan with special thoughts and a reason they were late but that fell through so But you know one of the. I'll say benefits of being a little late to the game. This week is that we've actually had the experience of the J. P. Morgan Aviation Conference Today. And it was a virtual event so she goes to show you just how serious the situation is a investor conference where typically they bring the senior executives in from all the airlines in each hour two or half an hour to present to gather groups and then they do a meet and greet private meetings in a dinner at Temple. Big Thing Quality Boondoggle Was done for airlines by teleconference today. So I if that's not a metaphor. I don't know what is and and the news from that. Teleconference was not much cut. Cut cut cut cut cut everybody except for Alaska Airlines. That spoke today on and it was the. Us carriers that you'd think of minus southwest. I'll spoke so jetblue and bigger Mina South West All spoke today all said that They were cutting service and most of them had announced it some way some form Alaska Airlines is not cutting margin April but currently has a three and a half percent cut in. May and that's sort of the telling thing is like they're pulling for May they they see the future demand not recovering for a long time United is Scott. Kirby said he thinks it's eighteen months before demand returns to its pre corona virus level. So call it like whatever we were at the end of December but he also said SARS was a fourteen month cycle and they're they're extending a little bit so and if if I was to look at what like I add his out from SARS. Their version of the chart came back much quicker. I don't know visit. United was slower or the industry was really slower than I added. Sort of lying about the numbers are pushing version that they liked But there's some interesting things to consider there but everybody's cutting American pulled ten percent or seven percent of domestic going forward and a bunch of international cuts and international cuts are going longer term than really interesting to me there. This isn't a week or month even at a time anymore. You know going back to vases comment from a few weeks ago. Where there's where he said they're cutting month we at time with each passing week. Another month is scheduled. That's really where we're at now in this. Is that simply? Think lack of demand tree backup. If the corona virus was to disappear to the airline seat those months as the time it would take to get demand back to where it was. Yeah it they they just. They don't see the demand coming back a lot of references. Essentially there are some differences of opinion. There was a lot of things that were some of it. Some differences of opinion a lot of comments about the travelers still today are all still spring break travel that was previously booked into people. WanNa throw away. But that future bookings aren't happy as much aren't happening as much So that's part of it. There's also the question of can you induce travelers by dropping. There's enough and Scott Kirby from United's basically said dismissive manner said I didn't even realize there's another theory. Then people could still be convinced to travel if it's cheap enough. Because they were worried about travelling because they want to get sick At the same time Alaska Airlines and everything said you know. We said something like that. We ran a sale last week just to test the waters and people buy tickets and me. I'm more than we expected. Know What's interesting? I was looking airfares. Given how empty allegedly empty flights are airfares are still high. Yeah and we can close in far out how far less than seven days. Yeah you would think like if you've got empty flights now you'd start filling them but they're not so the one comment that. I think it was American. I think Doug Parker said they did a similar thing where they released some of their. You'll controls but it was still focused on greater than seven days out so they're still not. Bush is interesting because I think the theory there is business. Travelers aren't traveling and if they do decide to travel they'll pay whatever it costs they're still trying to pick up some of the uncertain leisure travel but not willing to give up business revenues where it might happen
